At the end of The Future of gaming Stream we finally got a PlayStation 5 hardware reveal! Let’s take a look at the the next generation console coming this Fall 2020.
Two version of PlayStation 5
Standing vertically tall (can also be placed horizontally), the black and white machine comes in two form. A standard PS5 featuring a 4K Blu-ray drive and a pure Digital Edition. The latter is slimmer in comparison with the absence of the drive. We’re guessing its price point will be lower as well. Perfect for gamers who only buy digital copies and want to save a few bucks.
What can it do?
Sony’s next gen console is running eight-core AMZ Zen 2 CPU on top of a custom AMD RDNA 2-based GPU. This was announced 3 months ago in March and we know that the custom AMD chips provides 10.28 teraflops of power.
To boost loading time for games, Sony is going with the SSD solution. This provides 825GB of space and 5.5GB/s of performance. The console will also support 8K graphics, 4K graphics with 120Hz refresh rate and 3D audio.
Most importantly, it supports backward compatibility including more than 4,000 existing PlayStation 4 titles.
Besides getting the console itself that typically comes with one DualSense controller, here are other stuff that you get as well. This includes a HD camera, a DualSense charging dock, 3D Pulse wireless headset and a media remote. The add-ons designs are made to compliment the console itself, take a look.
Unfortunately, the one thing Sony did not announce was the price. We’re guessing it’ll be your left kidney.
